Running in Hawaii

Select Local Merchants

With new races popping up weekly in cities around the world, the organizers of the Spartan Race are almost as busy as their race's runners. Almost. The grueling races range from the Spartan Sprint, which is a 5K with more than 15 obstacles, to the Ultra Beast, which is a marathon with more than 50 obstacles. Depending on the race, the obstacles may include mud pits, pugil sticks, or fire. To unite the sprawling operation, Spartan Race tracks racers' point totals on its online-standings page.

Glow Hawaii Glow is not about how fast you run—it's about how brightly you shine. The 5K race decks out participants in glowing accessories, and encourages them to wear white clothing so that the course's black-lights have a dazzling effect. At every kilometer of the race, a different surprise or obstacle illuminates runners. And, because these areas are "party zones", participants can jog, walk, or dance along on their surfboard, so long as they reflect the celebratory spirit of the event. After the race, an after-party keeps the glow going with music and luminous decorations.
